Suicide Squad has a surprise DC superhero cameo

WARNING: This article contains spoilers for Suicide Squad.

We've known for a while that Ben Affleck's Batman will have an extended cameo in Suicide Squad (opens in new tab), but now it looks like the Dark Knight won't be the only Justice League member who'll be showing up in the movie. According to the cast list (via i09 (opens in new tab)), Ezra Miller's Flash will also be making an appearance. 

Check it out below...

If that cast list is in order of appearance, then Miller's presence makes a lot of sense; Captain Boomerang is one of The Flash's premier villains, so it's likely that we'll get a glimpse of the encounter that resulted in Boomerang ending up in Belle Reve.  

I was a little underwhelmed by the little we saw of Barry Allen in Batman v Superman, but Miller's take on the Scarlet Speedster was one of the highlights of the Justice League trailer. Given that that movie is still over a year away, it's great that we're going to be seeing a little more of The Flash sooner than expected.

Directed by David Ayer and starring Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, and Joel Kinnaman, Suicide Squad will open in the UK and US on August 5, 2016.
